Yeah, it's true. I super-compressed every episode, and now a full hour of the show is available in only 24 MB. [LATER CORRECTED: the filesize is closer to 50 MB per episode].

That means I could fit EVERY SINGLE EPISODE on a single 16GB flash drive and mail it to you.

The quality is crap (but useable), but it might be a cheap solution for those who don't have high-speed.

My cost on a 16GB flash stick is $25 plus shipping (it has our logo on it). Is this something worth pursuing? Is there anyone out there who would pay enough to cover the hardware, shipping & perhaps a little extra for the time to create it?

I'm really feeling like the social buttons were important on the show index page (Flattr, Facebook Like, Twitter Tweet, Google +1).

Do I paginate so it doesn't affect performance as much, or do I use a popup with a simple "Share" button on each episode?

I removed the image lazy loader from the Season 5 episode list page on V3. I felt the advantages of having a lazy loader (which I love) were outweight by the disadvantages (mainly, the user had to scroll once to see the first image, and we can't use some jquery plugins which allow category sorting).

Comments? I know this adds to the load size of the page pretty substantially, but because we're on a CDN, I think it'll still be super fast. How does it feel to you?

All Season 5 episodes are in V3.

Now to move on to Season 4-1 and then get started importing the show notes..... Ohmigosh, do you know how much work this is? Tongue

The V3 PayPal Donation system is in place, albeit untested.

If you plan to donate anytime soon please do it with the V3 version rather than on the current V2 site, and let me know how it goes.

I still have to make the customized "Thank you" pages, but at least the transaction should work better than ever.

Cheers!

There are fully 200 posts on this entire forum so far, yet no matter when I login, Google and Baidu are sittin there doing some indexing action. Seriously?

How many resources they must kill on heavy-weight sites... like V2. Wink

But realistically... how long does it take to index 200 posts? Huh

I just found BitBucket. https://bitbucket.org/ It is an awesome hosted Git service. It allows for private repo's (but with limited contributors.) That isn't a big issue with myself who just needs a private server for my personal code.

GitHub still rules for public repositories. It has a much better interface and more users, but if you want just a few personal repo's, BitBucket is worth looking at.

2545-CAT5TV is our phone number, and wicked nice, it now rings both in the studio and on my iPod Touch.

Yeah, you heard me. Nice.
